Club career[edit]

Víctor Cáceres begins his career at the age of 13 in the Escuela de fútbol de la Asociación Mutual del Personal de la Administración Nacional de Electricidad (Ampande), located in the Santísima Trinidad neighborhood of the capital of the country, Asunción.

Cáceres debuted for Atlántida Asunción in 2002 in Paraguay's 3rd division.[1] Cáceres continued his career in the youth divisions of Atlántida SC where he played until the age of 18, moving to the youth divisions of Libertad and making his professional debut with the team at the age of 21.[2] Slowly, he settled in the first team and eventually became a key player, helping the team win the league and becoming part of the Paraguay national team.

Flamengo[edit]

On July 2012 at the end of his contract with Libertad Víctor signed with Brazilian Série A club Flamengo on a free transfer.[3] He took almost a month to be able to play due to contractual problems with his former club. Víctor debuted for Flamengo on 9 August 2012 in a 2x0 win against Figueirense at Orlando Scarpelli Stadium.[4]
